“Sofia, ma hai un corso in italiano? Io purtroppo non capisco l’inglese!” 

Questa è la domanda che ricevo più frequentemente dagli italiani.

Questo corso (Cello Scroll-ability) è IN ITALIANO, poichè è tenuto da mio padre Paolo Vettori.

Poi ci sarò io, Sofia Vettori, in sottofondo che tradurrò ogni sua singola parola anche in inglese. Ma il corso è in italiano!

Quindi, se sei sempre stato/a incuriosito/a dai miei corsi ma non li hai acquistati per paura della lingua, beh ora non hai più scuse! 😃

Ad ogni modo anche tutti gli altri corsi, che sono in lingua inglese, sono facilmente comprensibili da tutti, perchè parlo lentamente e faccio vedere ogni piccolo passaggio sempre passo dopo passo.

Inoltre per chi diventa studente c’è il nostro gruppo Facebook “Sofia Vettori Star Pupils”, dove potrai farmi qualsiasi domanda tu voglia anche in italiano.

The direct experience of the students of Bassbar-ability

Hi Sofia, I bought Bassbar-ability right before I went to sleep and yesterday I watched the whole course in one big bite.
I will watch it many more times later.
I liked the course very much and it was liberating to hear that you fit the Bassbar without those wooden guides and without clamping the table to a metal ring whilst fitting the Bassbar.
You are very clear to follow with easy precise instructions in a warm atmosphere as usually.
I will try your method next time.
I'm very glad I bought the course.

🇮🇹 Italian tradition, my story, my legacy

I was born in a family of violin makers, so I had the privilege to start very early making violins.

I learned from my father Paolo Vettori, who learned from his father Dario I Vettori.

I’m lucky to keep the legacy of more than 90 years of violinmaking Italian Classic Tradition.

During my youth, I didn’t go to a classic “Violin making school”.

I learned in the most traditional way: my father and my grandfather handed down the knowledge to me.

I haven’t had anyone who told me “this can’t be done”, so I could try and experiment freely whatever I wanted.

That’s how I found the way that works, my way.

And I always encourage my Star Pupils to find their own way.

Thanks to my hard work I’ve received sincere compliments from some the most valuable luthiers around the world.

I was mentioned in Strad Magazine as well.

Now I can say it with confidence: you can be a luthier even without having attended a school.
 
Indeed, perhaps it reflects more the true tradition of craftsmanship handed down from father to son.

From Master to Pupil.

⭐️ What you give...will be yours forever

Sofia, why would you reveal your own secrets?!

You know, in the violin making industry, old masters tend to be very jealous of their knowledge and experience.

As if sharing their knowledge somehow would ruin and destroy all their career.

99,9% of them think like: “…if you’re good at something, keep it secret!”.

I am different.

I feel deep joy and fulfillment in sharing my knowledge and expertise with others.

I think this enriches everyone, both the teacher and the pupils.

⭐️ What you give will be yours forever ⭐️

This is my motto.

Violin Making School Certificate

Not everybody is determined enough to bring projects to an end.

That’s why I want to give a special reward to my Star Pupils who complete 100% of the course.

Certificate

Log in to your reserved area

Wherever you like. Whenever you prefer. Every time you want.

You can easily watch each lesson the way you prefer.

Once purchased, the Cello Scroll-ability course will be yours forever, it’s not a recurrent a membership.

And you can watch it again and again, with no time limit.

How much does it cost [not to have it]?

At this point you may be wondering: “How much does the course cost?”
 

But I suggest you to think about a slightly different question:

How much does it cost NOT TO HAVE IT?

I think Cello Scroll-ability is an investment that pays for itself in a short time.

Why is this an INVESTMENT?

With this course, you will:

✔️ Have my father Paolo Vettori (one of the greatest Cello Maker in the world) as a mentor: he will lead you through the authentic Classic Italian violin making tradition 

✔️ Save your time and speed up your learning process

✔️ Prevent a lot of annoying and frustrating mistakes

✔️ Have all the information you need in a clear and well-structured way

✔️ Have a step-by-step method you can follow to achieve your next level

✔️ Have lifetime access to the course

✔️ Have the support of people like you, my Star Pupils

✔️ Have no risk [look at the following section]

30 days Money Back Guaranteed

You're safe, I'll take all the risks.

You know, everyone can purchase Cello Scroll-ability, watch through all the lessons and then ask for a refund within 30 days, just by sending me an email and without having to justify it.

In this case I will refund 100% of the course.

“Sofia, what about if someone look through all the lessons and then asks money back?”

Well, if someone acts like that they are not moved by a good purpose.

And as I want to deal only with good people, I’m more than happy to give money and not see him/her anymore.

This is my philosophy.

I wanna be totally candid, honest and transparent.

So…what have you got to lose?

Make your choice. Start your adventure now.

🇮🇹 Se sei italiano/a,
questa sezione è per te 🇮🇹

[If you’re Italian, this section is for you]

“Sofia, ma hai un corso in italiano? Io purtroppo non capisco l’inglese!” 

Questa è la domanda che ricevo più frequentemente dagli italiani.

Questo corso (Cello Scroll-ability) è IN ITALIANO, poichè è tenuto da mio padre Paolo Vettori.

Poi ci sarò io, Sofia Vettori, in sottofondo che tradurrò ogni sua singola parola anche in inglese. Ma il corso è in italiano!

Quindi, se sei sempre stato/a incuriosito/a dai miei corsi ma non li hai acquistati per paura della lingua, beh ora non hai più scuse! 😃

Ad ogni modo anche tutti gli altri corsi, che sono in lingua inglese, sono facilmente comprensibili da tutti, perchè parlo lentamente e faccio vedere ogni piccolo passaggio sempre passo dopo passo.

Inoltre per chi diventa studente c’è il nostro gruppo Facebook “Sofia Vettori Star Pupils”, dove potrai farmi qualsiasi domanda tu voglia anche in italiano.

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to spread the beauty of art around the world by sharing our knowledge. 

THAT’S WHY WE CREATED THE CELLO SCROLL-ABILITY COURSE.

Paolo Vettori's Cellos

Paolo Vettori is widely recognized as one of the finest and most experienced cello makers in the world.

What my Star Pupils say

The direct experience of the students of Bassbar-ability

Leggi Tutto
Hi Sofia, I bought Bassbar-ability right before I went to sleep and yesterday I watched the whole course in one big bite.
I will watch it many more times later.
I liked the course very much and it was liberating to hear that you fit the Bassbar without those wooden guides and without clamping the table to a metal ring whilst fitting the Bassbar.
You are very clear to follow with easy precise instructions in a warm atmosphere as usually.
I will try your method next time.
I'm very glad I bought the course.

🇮🇹 Italian tradition, my story, my legacy

I was born in a family of violin makers, so I had the privilege to start very early making violins.

I learned from my father Paolo Vettori, who learned from his father Dario I Vettori.

I’m lucky to keep the legacy of more than 90 years of violinmaking Italian Classic Tradition.

During my youth, I didn’t go to a classic “Violin making school”.

I learned in the most traditional way: my father and my grandfather handed down the knowledge to me.

I haven’t had anyone who told me “this can’t be done”, so I could try and experiment freely whatever I wanted.

That’s how I found the way that works, my way.

And I always encourage my Star Pupils to find their own way.

Thanks to my hard work I’ve received sincere compliments from some the most valuable luthiers around the world.

I was mentioned in Strad Magazine as well.

Now I can say it with confidence: you can be a luthier even without having attended a school.
 
Indeed, perhaps it reflects more the true tradition of craftsmanship handed down from father to son.

From Master to Pupil.

⭐️ What you give...will be yours forever

Sofia, why would you reveal your own secrets?!

You know, in the violin making industry, old masters tend to be very jealous of their knowledge and experience.

As if sharing their knowledge somehow would ruin and destroy all their career.

99,9% of them think like:

“…if you’re good at something, keep it secret!”.

I am different.

I feel deep joy and fulfillment in sharing my knowledge and expertise with others.

I think this enriches everyone, both the teacher and the pupils.

⭐️ What you give will be yours forever ⭐️

This is my motto.

Violin Making School Certificate

Not everybody is determined enough to bring projects to an end.

That’s why I want to give a special reward to my Star Pupils who complete 100% of the course.

Certificate

Log in to your reserved area

Wherever you like. Whenever you prefer. Every time you want.

You can easily watch each lesson the way you prefer.

From your laptop, from your tablet, from your smartphone.

Once purchased, the Cello Scroll-ability course will be yours forever, it’s not a recurrent a membership.

And you can watch it again and again, with no time limit.

As time goes by, I will be recording brand new lessons and you will have them for free.

How much
does it cost
[not to have it]?

At this point you may be wondering: “How much does the course cost?”
 

But I suggest you to think about a slightly different question:

How much does it cost NOT TO HAVE IT?

I think Cello Scroll-ability is an investment that pays for itself in a short time.

Why is this an INVESTMENT?

With this course, you will:

✔️ Have my father Paolo Vettori (one of the greatest Cello Maker in the world) as a mentor: he will lead you through the authentic Classic Italian violin making tradition 

✔️ Save your time and speed up your learning process

✔️ Prevent a lot of annoying and frustrating mistakes

✔️ Have all the information you need in a clear and well-structured way

✔️ Have a step-by-step method you can follow to achieve your next level

✔️ Have lifetime access to the course

✔️ Have the support of people like you, my Star Pupils

✔️ Have no risk [look at the following section]

30 days Money Back Guaranteed

You're safe, I'll take all the risks.

You know, everyone can purchase Cello Scroll-ability, watch through all the lessons and then ask for a refund within 30 days, just by sending me an email and without having to justify it.

In this case I will refund 100% of the course.

“Sofia, what about if someone look through all the lessons and then asks money back?”

Well, if someone acts like that they are not moved by a good purpose.

And as I want to deal only with good people, I’m more than happy to give money and not see him/her anymore.

This is my philosophy.

I wanna be totally candid, honest and transparent.

So…what have you got to lose?

Make your choice. Start your adventure now.

What is PRIMING INSIDE?

“Sofia, why do you color your violin…INSIDE?!”

Inside the violin - Sofia Vettori

In violin making everything is related to the sound.

You could have an amazingly beautiful violin, but if it doesn’t sound good…it’s a problem!

In the course “Inside the violin” you will learn:

  • The exact process I do for the top, back and ribs before I close the body
  • How to make the colored preparation
  • All the materials you need to buy
  • How to prepare and apply all of them
  • How to make the instrument sound beautifully

What is BASSBAR-ABILITY?

“Sofia, how can I set up the Bassbar in the most effective way?!”

Bassbar 1 ok

In this course I will reveal you the exact procedure I always use to set up the Bassbar, with my personal Freehand Method, without wooden supports.

It will save you a lot of time.

It’s like taking the training wheels off your bike!

What you will learn here is crucial to achieve a beautiful sound on the violin.

Preparing, fitting, gluing and shaping with accurate numbers and measurements…and the Bassbar will have no more secrets!

Why should I purchase it TODAY?

“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago.
The second best time is now.”🌿

[Confucio]

At this point you might have read all this page.

And maybe you wish to have the Cello Scroll-ability, but you are still stuck and you tend to procrastinate…

So I’ll give you 3 more reasons to buy it now:

1️⃣ The PRICE WILL INCREASE over time as I add lessons

2️⃣ Once you have purchased the course, the new lessons I will release in the future and all updates will be completely free for you

3️⃣ Investing in yourself is the best investment you can do (I personally am investing thousands of dollars in training every year).
In the last two years I have learned that procrastinating is not a winning attitude

Yes, you are free to choose the payment method you prefer.

You can one shot or in installments.

You can see all the details in the pricing section. 

Very simple.

If there’s a coupon also valid on the payment plan in installment, the total amount of the discount coupon will be splitted in the number of installments.

I’ll give you a little example, with arbitrary numbers.

Imagine you have a discount coupon of 90$ that works for the “COURSE X“, and you chose the option to pay in 3 installments instead of one shot payment.

Then you will get 30$ off on each of the 3 installments. For a total of 90$ discount.
